“instead of being a commentary on whether socialism “works” or how to achieve it, Democratic Socialism Simulator is simply a political game that treats democratic socialist policies like reasonable ideas, then plays out their trade-offs in a surprisingly adorable setting.”

“The game we didn’t know we needed to survive this primary season”
